Zachary Morgan:What?
Mary Marshall:The doctors are gonna be very surprised when they see you. They'll probably send you back to active duty.
Zachary Morgan:That lemonade must have been spiked.
Mary Marshall:No, I really mean it. Do you realize what you did tonight? I bet you couldn't have done that a week ago.
Zachary Morgan:What?
Mary Marshall:Well, I watched you all evening. When you were dancing, you never hesitated for words, and your eyes didn't blink. And then when that dog attacked us, I've never seen anyone quite so fast on their feet.
Zachary Morgan:I didn't even think about what I was doing.
Mary Marshall:That's just it, you were so alert and keen, and your timing was perfect.
Zachary Morgan:I hope you're right. I believe you are. Mary, you told me that in eight days you can do a lot of believing.

Proves the old adage, "you are as sick as your secrets.", 23 June 2000
Author: 349thHWC from Walnut Creek, CA

Good World War II romantic drama with excellent performances by Ginger Rogers, Joseph Cotton and 16-year old Shirley Temple.

"I'll Be Seeing You" looks at the effects of a kind of `battle fatigue' known then as "old sergeant's syndrome". This particular form of post-traumatic stress occurred in battle-seasoned noncommissioned officers. After a dreadful encounter with someone's guard dog Sgt. Zachary Morgan, on leave from an Army mental hospital, experiences a very realistic and dramatically effective "flash back". Through judicious camera editing you see Joseph Cotton affect the appropriate 'sweat response', as his forehead, chest, shoulders and armpits become progressively more sweat-drenched. Very realistic!

This movie also subtly delivers the message that none of us are perfect and that open-mindedness and compassion are virtues called for under difficult circumstances.
